I know why Brian Roberts is blue …
Orioles players have joked in the past that they didn’t look like their bobblehead dolls. But when a recent shipment of Brian Roberts bobbleheads arrived, team officials knew something was wrong.
Roberts, who is white, had dark skin. It wasn’t just a deep tan.
"It didn’t look like Brian Roberts. The coloring was bad," Orioles spokesman Bill Stetka said. "I didn’t actually see it. I’ve heard various versions that it was very dark and bluish" (emphasis mine)
OK …. here we find the possible mixup:
On the left, Brian Roberts …. and on the right, a baseball Smurf.
